On science

Science is doomed to an eternal update, because the truth can not be accessed. It will be truth 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and so on indefinitely. A belief in science (like cladistics) is thus just as stupid as all other beliefs are. Science is not a philosophy, but a practical way to handle reality. Science does not compete with beliefs such as Christianity and Islam, but does just seek models that can imitate reality. Science is thus neither measuring the temperature outside nor seeking a belief (like cladistics and particle physics), but a method to find models that can imitate reality. If this means that we can model reality but not understand it, like quantum mechanics, then, so be it. Science deals with problems as they come without beliefs. Science is actually the opposite to belief.

This is why cladistics and particle physics is so devastating for science. Maintaining the notion that science can function as a belief is practical suicide of science. I thus want to make clear that science is just a practical way to handle reality, nothing more and nothing less.
